We have reactivated new user account registrations so now anyone can register and join UKA again without having to email to request a new account.

Also, we’ve decided to move away from scheduled publishing days and instead allow INSTANT submissions. 

We are going to redesign the FrontPage to show ‘editors picks’ and ‘featured submissions’ rather than just a list of ‘latest submissions’.
